Based on Atlantic’s experiences, the article suggests that funders taking on work that aims to hold government accountable for meeting its constitutional responsibility “would do well to put time and care into grantee selection, finding the individuals and groups with the passion, shared values, and skills to develop and adapt effective strategies.”

Health-E News, South African HIV Clinicians Society, Rural Health Advocacy Project (RHAP) (via WITS Health Consortium), Section 27 and Treatment Action Campaign are Atlantic grantees.
